1* Do you agree or disagree with the following statement - “We have a perfect storm brewing at the border because of a series of broken and outdated laws related to asylum and children.”

 

 

2* The majority of immigrant visas awarded in the United States are based on a family relationship. A proposal has been made to award visas instead on the level of skills a potential immigrant brings to this country. Do you favor moving to a merit-based system for legal immigration or prefer to keep the existing family-based system?
